California Healthline: Report Finds ACA Will Leave Many Californians Uninsured

Although the Affordable Care Act will reduce the number of uninsured residents in California, “a significant number will be left behind,” according to a new California HealthCare Foundation report, the Modesto Bee reports.

CHCF publishes California Healthline.

The report, titled “California’s Uninsured: By the Numbers,” provides a snapshot of the state’s uninsured residents and offers estimates about the effects of the Affordable Care Act.

Findings on Insured, Uninsured in California

According to the report, one in five Californians under age 65 is uninsured, the seventh-highest rate in the country.

It also found that 54% of residents received health coverage through their jobs last year, down from 63% in 1988.

In addition, the report found that:

  • One in four adults who work are uninsured;
  • About 40% of residents who work for small businesses with fewer than 10 employees are likely to be uninsured; and
  • 62% of uninsured children have parents who worked full-time in 2012.
